Go slow, don’t push yourself too hard. You are more likely to give up when you feel bad after working out. You want to feel “good sore” and excited to start again.
Remember, you won’t “feel” the workout until the next day or two and you won’t “see” results for quite possibly a few months.
It’s not a race, it’s a marathon.
This is to live a longer, healthier life, not to just look better for a few days.
The best ways I’ve found to reduce this soreness is to stay hydrated before, during and after. Eating/drinking a protein snack before helps quite a bit, too.
Of course, the day after you're not going to work out at all. However, I urge you to consider light exercise that will keep you on target while loosening you up. A walk or yoga would be my suggestion.
Good luck, and never give up!
